Exclusive: New Dorian Gray Poster
Creepy stuff for Oscar Wilde adaptation
As literary classics go, Oscar Wilde's story The Picture of Dorian Gray is scary, disturbing stuff. And appropriately, it looks from this poster like Oliver Parker's film version, Dorian Gray, is also going to creep us all out.
It's the story of the titular Dorian (Prince Caspian's Ben Barnes), a privileged and beautiful young man in Victorian England who wishes, as he gazes at his latest portrait, that the picture could age instead of him. Lo and behold, it does - but as Dorian becomes older and more corrupt, the portrait in the attic becomes a monster.
The film is out on September 9, also starring Colin Firth, Ben Chaplin, Rachel Hurd-Wood and Rebecca Hall. We can feel the shivers down on spines now.
